  1. Respect my rights, respect my dignity: module three – sexual and reproductive rights are human rights

    This module on sexual and reproductive rights is the third in a series of human rights education resources for young people. It is designed to be used by and with young people and youth activists as they support their peers through individual and collective journeys of reflection, critical analysis and action.

  2. Tuko Pamoja: A guide for peer educators

    This guide was developed by PATH as part of the Kenya Adolescent Reproductive Health Project (KARHP) Tuko Pamoja ("We are together") series. It is intended to be used by peer educators facilitating discussion groups with in- and out-of-school youth. The guide will help peer educators share information and lead discussions with their peers on addressing physical and emotional changes during adolescence, staying healthy, planning for the future, making good decisions, and preventing pregnancy and HIV and AIDS. …

  3. Building male involvement in SRHR: A basic model for male involvement in sexual and reproductive health and rights

    Sexual and Reproductive health has historically mainly been concerned with population control and restricting the behaviour of women. When men don’t share the responsibilities or benefits and burdens of sexual and reproductive health, women bear the majority of the responsibility for their own and their families’ sexual and reproductive health. This approach exacerbates gender inequalities and leads to poor health outcomes. This model includes a framework, guidance, and concrete recommendations for building male involvement in sexual and reproductive health and rights. …

    This report, commissioned by the Gesellschaft für International Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), brings out findings of an external assessment of the Youth-to-Youth (Y2Y) Initiative in Ethiopia and Kenya. The aim was to assess the results of the Y2Y-Initiative for young people with an emphasis on gender equality in the project regions both at individual level for participating young women and men as well as at the level of potentially changed perceptions of, and attitudes towards young people, in particular women, in their social environment.

  6. Rethinking how to prevent HIV in young people: evidence from two large randomised controlled trials in Tanzania and Zimbabwe

    The MEMA kwa Vijana (Tanzania) and Regai Dzive Shiri (Zimbabwe) adolescent sexual and reproductive health intervention trials focused on developing skills and changing attitudes and self-efficacy to change behaviours. The trials show a clear gap between young people's knowledge, and their reported attitudes and behaviour. …

  7. Education is empowerment: promoting goals in population, reproductive health and gender

    This meeting report is based on a Fund-wide consultation to review UNFPA's three-decade long experience in population education (PopEd). The report highlights issues and recommendations for addressing and strengthening education interventions within the context of programme and funding priorities, and offers an opportunity to review lessons of the past and chart some of the ways forward. …

  8. Young people make the difference: peer influence on reproductive health of young people in Dakar, Senegal

    Senegal is mentioned by UNAIDS as best practice, since it is one of the few countries in Sub Sahara Africa with a very low HIV-prevalence, which is partly being attributed to early, far-reaching education and awareness-raising of the (young) population. This thesis does not aim to assess whether or not AIDS-education in Senegal is the cause of the low HIV-prevalence. It is aiming at gaining an insight into young people's lives and their perceptions of the severalsources of AIDS-education and information. How are young people in Senegal being informed about HIV/AIDS? What do they learn? …
